by what's going on right now. >> as with ronald reagan and bill clinton, the second terms, you can see a few green sheets of the economy and if that begins to surge, david axelrod tells me later in the show, has a real chance. >> he has a huge agenda, a lot of opportunities and going to have to find a way to work with republicans not only in the senate but the house of representatives. let's see if he can do it. it's a huge, huge challenge and the responsibility is enormous, the opportunity is great. >> well, we have to see and itching to get to the party, wolf. >> love those people back there. did you hear the marching band? >> you know why i think they're so excited? your performance in skyfall. >> you were in "flight." >> that's why i wanted to mention it. >> i was in the james bond film. and you were in -- >> really great. really great for me. >> if you work really hard and play by the rules, some day maybe daniel craig and -- >> was it daniel craig or denzel washington oscar nominated? >> i don't know. >> it was denzel. do you know who helped him? me. >> let me point out. $1 billi
for partisanship and he'll be that when the time arises. this was answering ronald reagan from 32 years ago. his whole philosophy was intensively individualistic. president obama answered that today. and he said an old speech writers device. to repeat again and again, we the people, we the people. the first three words of our founding document. he embraces that, he said to ronald reagan, we're stronger together. and i thought it was powerful but philosophical. i thought this was obama at his best. >> i saw a lot of tweets from republicans saying this was a call for big government that he didn't reach out enough. >> there was partisanship. it is hard to deny when he directly rebuked the gop by saying we are not a country of takers. by defending the government level of programs, social security, medicare, medicaid. but directly rebuking paul ryan and the 47% comment that got mitt romney in trouble. there may have been high arching philosophical tones but there were also those tones. >> are you embracing the 47% comment? >> no, no, i wouldn't say, i don't know if it is fair to say it wasn't partisa
on today. washington's weather regularly changes in january. ronald reagan had the warmest and the coldest inauguration day. 55 degrees, and the coldest ever, 7 degrees in 1985. here's what we're looking at during the day today. we think at the swearing-in, the temperature's about 40 degrees. and we're almost there. and the parade is two miles long. do they make a walk? it's 45 degrees during the day today, during the inaugural parade around 2:30. behind that, everyone's been talking about it, the thought there will be brutal cold air and a snowshower that comes in during the day today. it's not today. it's tonight. and the temperatures will drop for a good part of the country, from the great lakes, all the way to our nation's capital. george? >> thank you, sam. i'm sure the president and first lady will be getting out. we'll get a look at what they're wearing. >>> coming up, as our live coverage continues, we're going to have our fashion expert weighing in, as "good morning america" continues with inauguration day, 2013. >>> back with our special coverage of "gma" at the inauguration. you
inaugural, beat the 7 degrees it was for ronald reagan's second. >> that's right. let's talk about where the president is, as he starts his second four years in office even before the gun debate is hammering his approval. 51% approval rating which is really where george w. bush was, it's 19 points less than bill clinton was, but far below where he was. >> alisyn: yeah, you remember four years ago how exciting it was for the country as he was being sworn in and how much hope there was for hope and change and back then, the approval rating according to gallup was 68% and today, you know, after four years and obviously, it's harder to be a president than a hopeful candidate, it's at 48%. >> steve: you know what's interesting, about two or three weeks ago at the conclusion of december, the gallup poll number was, don't tell me, was 58%, so, closer to 60. what's happened in the last couple of weeks? well, you know, he did win that fiscal cliff thing and jacked up taxes on the most successful people in the country a campaign promise and experts say it looks as if his push to reining in gun vio
was canceled because of weather was in 1985, when it was about 7 degrees, snowy, icy. ronald reagan decided to stay inside and not hold the parade. today, the weather looks good. it's crisp. the show will go on, matt. >> far cry from that. willie, we'll check in with you during the morning as well. thank you very much. >>> lester holt is also here on capitol hill somewhere behind me. good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. we have a great view, the platform where the president will be sworn in, 10,000-square-foot platform will be filled with members of the house and senate, supreme court, members of the cabinet along with the diplomatic core and others. the program gets under way about 11:30. it should last about an hour and a half. james taylor, kelly clarkson and beyonce, who will sing the national anthem at the close of the ceremony. chief justice roberts will administer the sceremonial oath the lincoln bible and the travel bible owned by the reverend dr. martin luther king jr., whose birthday we celebrate today. in that speech worry told the president will talk about the n
of where george w. bush was in 2005 but seven points behind bill clinton. >> ronald reagan had the same rating as bill clinton at 62% and richard nixon was down to 51% in 1973. both lyndon johnson and dwight eisenhower topped everyone here, they reached the low 70s. they were at 71% and 73% respentively. >> that's pretty impressive. >> those numbers would never exit tod exist today. >>> thousands of people are starting to descend this morning. >> never too early to get ready. this morning, though, we'll look past the oath of office to the next four years. the issues, the plans, the prospects. as joe johns reports, some of the most notorious scandals also happened in the second term. >> reporter: president obama has high hopes for the next four years. >> i intend to carry out the agenda that i campaigned on. >> reporter: if he wants to reach that goal, history says a second-term president has got to move fast. >> power does seep away from the presidency very quickly in the second term. >> second term presidents and their congresses have two different clocks and the president's clock is n
was the first sworn in on the east side of the capitol building and ronald reagan was the first sworn in on the west. the shortest inaugural address was george washington's second while the longest was william henry harrison's who talked for almost two hours in the winter rain. he caught pneumonia and died a month later. six presidents have taken the oath outside washington, george washington first in new york and philadelphia. john adams in philadelphia. chester arthur in new york. teddy roosevelt in buffalo. calvin coolidge in plymouth, vermont, and lbj in dallas. james polk's inauguration was the first to be covered use the telegraph and warren hardings parade was the first to use cars. james buchanan's inaugural was the first one photographed and william mckinley's what's the first filmed. cal lidge's what's the first on radio and hoover's was the if irs in a movie new reel. the first to be televised was harry truman. lincoln's parade was the first to include african-americans and wilson's was the first to include women. while bad weather moved the ceremony indoors for william how
model for him would be bill clinton's inaugural address, or ronald reagan's second inaugural. both of those were similar kinds of political environments. congress was in the hands of the other party. or one house was, at least. and each of them was very gracious towards the other party. reached out, said things about the goodwill of the other party. >> the difference there is reagan could look back and talk about how the republicans worked with democrats to fix social security, bill clinton could look back and talk about the deficit reduction plan. other things they had done a little bit together. it's harder for president obama to do that because there's been so much polarization. >> polarization has been on both sides. it would be a good step for the president, i actually don't expect him to take it. to try to put that behind, to have at least a rhetorical frame for being more enveloping. obviously in the last few days, last week or so, he hasn't taken that tact. he's, he had his press conference about a week ago. he's had some, they've floated some stories about how they're goin
. this is when ronald reagan started his second term and bill cl clinton here up at 60%. a low point in terms of his three most recent predecessor as a two-term president. but a high point for this president. if you look at this here, this goes back through the carter presidency and george h.w. bush presidency and you see, again, a low mark for any president in modern time. thinks things in the country are going well, but better for him if you look at the obama presidency here. now, here's a question here. what kind of president will the president obama be in his second term? 54%, majority of americans think he is above average or outstanding. that is a good number for the president. but you see, again, just over 40% of americans say he is below average or poor. a partisan divide and this shows you why. the american people, look at that number. 76% of americans think the country is more deeply divided than in the past. unity bringing people together and getting the government to work is a big challenge of the president's second inaugural address. 70% of americans are hopeful that the presiden
so-called. now we're standing inside this symbol of our democracy. >> ronald reagan back in 1985. at 73 years of age, delivering his second inaugural address and making reference to the fact that on that day in washington, back in 1985, it was 7 degrees outside, so the proceedings were moved inside the capitol rotunda. take a look at the crowds that are now building just behind us here on the mall. people also gathering along the parade route even though the parade won't start for several hours. but those are just some of the 500,000 to 700,000 people expected in washington this morning for the second inauguration of barack obama. >>> every day, thousands of letters are delivered to the white house. and every night, the president handwrites responses to just a select few. kevin tibbles has the story of one letter from a tiny town in northern minnesota. >> reporter: wely. seems like winter. below zero windchill. >> reporter: folks here like to joke about living at the end of the road. >> we have all kinds of decrcree ways of making the white season theatrical. >> reporter: fell in
americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. >> ronald reagan gave the first inaugural address from the west front of the capitol. in doing so issued a manifesto of the area's conservative tide. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. >> but the most recent inaugural address was that given by barack obama. >> this is the price and the promise of citizen ship. this is the source of our confidence, the knowledge that god calls on us to shape and uncertain destiny. this is the meaning of our liberty and our creed, why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent mall, and why a man whose father who less than 60 years ago might not have been served in a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath. >> wow. at its best, inaugural justice for a presidency, what a lead sentence does for a book. it captures the duration of what's to come. a great presidency often begins with a great statement. in the day that m
still a republican? i grew up under ronald reagan, and george schultz, and george herbert walker bush, and that's the republican party i knew. i think we've drifted from that. there's nothing wrong starting to drift a little bit back. not because it's good to be moderate. but that's where the american people are. they lost an election. two. >> five out of the last six. and the president will try to, you know, tie everyone together today. one speech can't do that. but what does he need to do, in your view? >> in the speech, i think he needs to appeal to our better angels. raise -- don't just tell me about the policy statements. save that for the state of the union. inspire america today. and i hope that's what he will try to do. but he needs to get to work. and the number one problem is the economy. he's got to fix the economy. the fiscal situation has been fixed, to a large extent. the stock market's doubled. that's pretty good. but he has to get everybody working again. it means fix the economy. it means fix the education. so we're bringing kids along that have the skills for 21st ce
in a movie theater. a majority of americans agree with us on this. and by the way, so did ronald reagan, one of the staunchest defenders of the second amendment, who wrote to congress in 1994 urging them to listen to the american public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of military-style assault weapons. >> clearly reagan hated america. >> stephanie: right. see he also serves the reagan at him. my debt ceiling solution i liked, put the million dollars coin on it. you voted against the reagan coin. >> you voted for reagan. >> well, there you go again. >> stephanie: forty-five minutes after the hour. >> you might be the only person i know that voted for reagan. ermahgerd. forty-five minutes after the hour. right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> announcer: the only place in america where decent is still allowed. it's the "stephanie miller show." ♪ current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? [ ryon ] eating shrimp at red lobster is a fantastic experience. 30 shrimp for $11.99. i can't imagine a
under oath. clinton got to stay in office when the senate acquitted him. and for ronald reagan, it was iran contra. >> a few months ago, i told the american people, i did not trade arms for hostages. my heart and my best intentions still tell me that's true, but the facts and the evidence tell me it is not. >> reporter: the scandal led to investigations, indictments, and a weakened white house for reagan's final two years in office. if somehow president obama avoids all that, there's still a chance of an unforeseen crisis. >> you have to expect the unexpected in the second term. >> reporter: the soviet union shot down an american u-2 spy plane during dwight eisenhower's last year as president. and george w. bush's second term was bookended by emergencies, hurricane katrina's destruction of the gulf coast early on, the financial meltdown at the end. and after eight years, those moments of crisis could determine a president's legacy. >> when you're in the second term, you have no -- nothing left to run for, except a place in history. >> reporter: a number of presidents in their s
a likability factor here that rivals ronald reagan, right? and it's very similar to that. but more people disapprove of his policies than approve of them. and so when you look at that, he's mindful of that a little bit. he's got a power to persuade when you have those kind of likability numbers. but at the same time, the public is sort of screaming at all of washington to do what savannah was talking about. and when we asked him wa kihat of message you want to send, he said fix this economy, create jobs and is for gosh sakes, compromise. i'm told in this anaugural address, he's going to be pragmatic of hope and is change rather than the full scale high level expectations you had four years ago, brian. >> and, chuck, these are speeches for the ages, the long view. but how much of current events do you think will be in it? we were speculating last night about two things in particular, number one, gun violence and the need, as the president sees it, to attack that as an issue quickly and, number two, we're going to be introducing doris kearns goodwin later on. what is the chance he doesn't q
terms. you look back at someone like ronald reagan or look at franklin roosevelt, you have much more kind of explicit ideological statements about government and what it is. actually the speech that it reminded me -- the most of was woodrow wilson inauguration in 1913. we are celebrating that anniversary as well, the 100th anniversary. in part because the issues are similar, climbed change now, environmental issues and taxation in banking. but the idea that people can't do certain things on their own and we need to come together. >> david? >> let me defend myself. let me attack richard. margaret thatcher gets a bad rap for that. that was -- >> that was -- >> i've always thought she got a bad rap. of who is paying tax bills that speech was first on liberalism i do think it was the most unapologetically liberal speech we've heard barack obama give. it was tracing american history saying that he faced to our ideals we have to change and we have to change in a collective direction. we have to guarantee equal income for women for the same work, he mentioned gay rights, mentioned clima
of congress, in the case of gun control, even red state democrats to marshal public support. ronald reagan did this, too. go over the heads of congress, try to appeal to people and tell them light up the congressman switch boards. >> it's interesting when a president gets a second term to see how they handle things differently than in the first. >> the history of second terms is not too good. ronald reagan, iran contra, bill clinton, monica lewisky, george w. bush, hurricane katrina. >> brings you back to your original question, why do they want the job? >> they all want the job. >> true. good to see you. you can catch fox news sunday 9:00 sunday morning after fox 5 morning news. >>> it's 8 19:00 now. still ahead, controversial statements, what former d.c. mayor marion berry is saying about his infamous drug arrest. >> plus, holly has an inaugural fashion show, it's coming up. we'll be right back.       >>> former mayor berry complained the fbi tried to kill him during their 1990 sting operation in which he was caught smoking crack cocaine in a hotel room. he tells u.s. news and wor

, 100 cubic yards of mulch. >> the west front, they have been doing it since ronald reagan was the first to move it from the east frowned front to the west front, they have it down to the science now.d frontt front, they have it down to the science now. front to the west front, they have it down to the science now. >> pretty. >> that is where i usually walk into the office and i haven't been able to do that for the past 3 1/2 months. nice to get it back. >> now you're just bragging. >> come visit us any time. >> let's hang before i leave. if we have a minute. thank you, dana bash. you know, much like super bowl weekend, there's something for everyone when it comes to the festivities during the inauguration weekend. at the top of the next hour, actress eva longoria hosts a salute to the president called latino inaugural 2013 in performance to the kennedy center. following that the red, white and blue ball and let freedom ring concert and even a hip-hop ball. rapper 2 chainz, r & b stars brandy you john legend and some of the many artists who are making their appearances there then at 8 p.
think he has to be careful about sort of promising too much. >> as an orator, think of ronald reagan and some of his speeches we remember to this day and thinking back on president obama's speeches, other than the ones on the campaign trail, i think about the newtown, because that was where he got emotional, but it was -- it's a different kind of rhetoric and oration and must be a decision by him, the mantle of president he feels is different? >> what i can say about this one, there's nothing tougher to do as a speech giver than what he's about to do. the problem that you have when you're dealing with the inaugural address is you have to deal with the present and you have to deal with the past and the future. you have to deal with the audience in flont of you. you will have a million people. right in front of you. but you also are dealing with people around the world. it is hard to do any one of those well. tough do them all the same time and can't go on forever. i think that he is going to want to do well tomorrow. i think he knows that there are people out there saying that this is
.c., to the stunning west side of the capitol where we've been swearing in our presidents since ronald reagan. of course, for political junkies, the inauguration is about history. for the rest of us, us fashion junkies it's about what they're going to wear, what will michelle obama wear tonight? i probably should say who will she wear? because one appearance on the first lady can make or break a fashion designer. and no one can tell this story for us like alina cho. >> first lady michelle obama. >> reporter: when first lady michelle obama walked out on stage in that memorable white gown by jason woo, overnight the designer became a household name. take me to that moment where she walked out. >> i was like, that's me! >> reporter: who will be the lucky one for years later? >> it's really brilliant what she's done in keeping it secret, i have to say. in the previous administrations while there was always interest in what the first lady wore there was never a red carpet moment. >> reporter: sources close to the process say what started out as a 20 designer field for the inaugural gown has whittl
be the liberal ronald reagan? could he be someone who could articulate liberalism in terms that were motivating, that were deeply rooted in american values, and moved the country in his direction? i think this speech was the first signal that he has that potential. this is not just ghazi, happy talk, hope and change, kumbaya. this was him staking a claim to a different kind of patriotism. and saying that in order for us to be who the founders want us to be, we have toticontinue to include the dr. kings and the latino community and everybody else. that was powerful. >> let's take a look at a moment a lot of people have been talking ability. one of president obama's open mike moments. i did get the sense, i mean, you're saying he's not going to see this again. you got the sense in his making that speech that he's not going to make a speech like that -- he doesn't have an opportunity to make a speech like that again in this moment in history, in this moment in his presidency, and i felt like these were a number of things he wanted to say. >> i think he was speaking to history. he has spent a lot o
ronald reagan, and there were some of his speeches we remember to this day, and yet if you think back on the last four years, other than the ones on the campaign trail, i think about newtown, that was where he got emotional, it was a -- it's a different kind of rhetoric and otheration. is it the mantle of president that he feels is different? >> there's nothing tougher to do as a speech giver than what he's about to do. the problem you have when you're dealing with the inaugural address, you have to deal with the present, the past and the future. you have to deal with the audience in front of you. you're going to have a million people in front of you. you're also dealing with people around the world. it's hard to do any of those well, you have to do them at the same time. i think he's going to want to do well tomorrow. i think he knows there are people out there that are going to say, this is the last big speech from obama. unless there's a war or something like that, there's pressure on him to do well. i think if i were advising him in this position, he has to sound the tone that he
to the watergate scandal and ultimately, his resignation. >> reporter: then, there is ronald reagan whose second term was justified by the iran hostage scandal. it was bill clinton's personal behavior that got him into hot the water. >> i did not have sexual relations with that woman. >> reporter: the fallout following his affair with an intern was a year of his presidency. they dubbed him the ultimate come back kid. >> i am bullet proof. >> i earned capital in the campaign, political capital and now i intend to spend it. >> reporter: despite that pledge in 2004, george w. bush's second term was marched about i a slew of bad headlines with escalating violence in iraq to his administration's response to hurricane katrina. still, second terms can offer a shot at redemption, take reagan paving the way for the end offer the cold war. >> mr. gorbachev, tear down this wall. >> reporter: humor can go a long way when president clinton with a little help from his wife mocked his lake duck status. >> i really think bill has everything under control. >> wait, wait, wait. you forgot your lunch. >> reporter:

. then, you can come back to ronald reagan, and lo and behold, no surprise, there is a rejection of the jimmy carter years, with a very formal, gold tickets to inaugural balls, and clearly it is an inaugural ball. the program that seems sort of informal for his, becomes pinched very formal -- becomes very formal just a few years later. this says something about those administrations and what they are trying to conceive and produce during those events, and it also says something about all of us as well -- something about the nation, its feelings, what it was looking for because they are certainly trying to play off of that as well. part of the material that we collect is just about the enthusiasm. now, inaugurations are meant to be days of national celebration and national unity. they are not, obviously, always that way, so these kind of souvenirs that people might create, just as in the days of george washington -- you know, here are these brass buttons, these little penance that people could buy from the vendors on the street and take home. i particularly like this. this is a li
